KOKSTAD tenants and landlords attended a three-day workshop which educated them about their rights.

The event was hosted by rental information services officers from the Kokstad Department of Human Settlements this week.

The workshop was held in the Kokstad Town Hall on Tuesday. On Wednesday it was held in the Thuntulwana Hall in Bhongweni and on Thursday it was held in the Shayamoya Hall.

At the workshop Khehla Dlamini, deputy director of rental information services, said landlords and tenants must know their rights and obligations.

He was accompanied by his assistant director, Sthembele Cele.

He said the Rental Housing Tribunal was established by government to resolve disputes between tenants and landlords.

“The rental housing tribunal has powers to receive complaints lodged by either tenants or landlords and conduct mediation or hearings to resolve disputes. People are not supposed to pay for lodging complaints,” said Dlamini.

The department has offices in 45 KZN municipalities, including in Harry Gwala, Dr Nkosazana Dlamini Zuma, Umzimkhulu, Ubuhlebezwe and Greater Kokstad where people can lodge complaints.
